Delicious! Always on the lookout for recipes using goat cheese, since we buy it in a BIG package at Costco! I use unsalted butter to cook with, and should have added a little salt to the recipe to make up for the lack of it in the butter. I couldn't find a small pack of pistachios (and didn't want a bunch of them left) so I subbed toasted pine nuts and that worked great. Thanks for this keeper.

Ohh yum! These are awesome muffins. I followed the recipe except added about 1 T dried tomato, minced in the batter. There was enough batter for exactly 6 muffins - standard muffin size and I did have to bake for 30 minutes instead of 25. I would certainly be making these again. They are perfect accompaniment to salads, light brunch, and even appetizers with a slice of cheese and wine. Thanks for sharing this recipe Lalaloula. Made for Australian Feb tag.
